The view of Mount Kilimanjaro at the beginning of the film is as it appears from the north, from the area ranging from the Ambosei to the Chyulu national parks in Kenya. For those familiar with the film, Out of Africa (1985), this would place the action approximately one hundred miles south-southeast of Karen Blixen's farm. In the mid-nineteenth century when the Royal Geographic Society first received reports of the snow-capped Kilimanjaro, the reports were rejected because the Society believed that such mountains could not exist in equatorial Africa. The mountain has one remarkable yet little-known feature in that at certain times of year, on the cusp of the rainy seasons, there can be tall billowing clouds at high altitudes with clear sky below that can stretch for great distances. In such circumstances, the setting sun can strike the snowy peak of Kilimanjaro, which will reflect the light so that it strikes the tall, high-atmosphere clouds, having the effect of a movie projector. When this happens, the reflection of Kilimanjaro can be seen from as far as eighty miles away, despite its being below the horizon. See more »

This film was re-released in IMAX and other large format theaters on December 25, 2002. The following changes were made to the film for this release:
-This movie opens with "The Lion King: Special Edition" title card, following the Walt Disney Pictures logo.
-The pouncing lesson scene was replaced with an all-new song, "Morning Report", originally from the stage show.
-The animation of crocodiles in the "I Just Can't Wait to be King" sequence was completely re-done.
-The animation in some of the scenes went back through the clean-up animation department a second time, to correct problems such as wavering lines and missing details, which, while not very noticeable during a traditional 35mm showing of the film, would have been discomforting on a much large IMAX screen. Small details, such as the characters who had faces that were too small to be seen in the original had faces, were also added.
-The waterfalls in the "Can You Feel The Love Tonight" sequence were enhanced.
-The 2003 Platinum Edition release omits the original end credits sequence and it uses the static end credits from the 2002 IMAX/Special Edition re-release. See more »
This is a film that can entertain anyone young or old, I usually don't care for animated movies but this film is the real deal, this is one of disney's best animated movies. The animation is top notch and flawless. This film also features superb work from the vocal cast James Earl Jones, Jeremy Irons, Whoopi Goldberg. This is a standout.
